West Coast Shipping was incorporated in May 2007 in California. In less than 5 years this family owned and operated business grew to become the largest auto shipper out of Port of Oakland. Our simple strategy has always been to be a true partner to our long time customers in solving ALL of their logistics needs.
Our services include export documentation, ground transportation, warehousing, loading, transportation to the port, selecting the right ocean carrier, and partnering with the right agent at destination. We believe that if we solve your logistics needs, you as a customer will be able to concentrate on purchasing and reselling your goods, while growing our mutual business.
Most of our customers have shipped with us for years and value WCS as an expert in ocean export. The majority of our customers are car dealers and classic car collectors, as well as boat, and heavy machinery traders. We are always open to partner with new customers and offer competitive rates and innovative logistics solutions.
In the last 5 years we have shipped vehicles, small and medium boat, 100+ ft yachts, jet skies, trucks, and other heavy machinery to all continents and most countries around the globe.
With headquarters in San Francisco Bay Area and loading facilities in Port of Oakland and Port of NY/NJ, we can deliver your cargo from any US State to one of our loading facilities, and quickly and inexpensively deliver it by ocean to any port in the world.
Our quality control practices ensure the safety and integrity of your cargo. We store your goods inside a fully secured warehouse until they are ready for departure. Our fully electronic management system provides error free documentation and tracking.
About Our Facilities
We currently offer storage and loading out of two locations: San Pablo, CA (near port of Oakland) and Roselle, NJ (near port of Elizabeth in NJ/NY).
The San Pablo facility is a 50,000 square feet warehouse conveniently located near Route 80 Interstate. The facility is 11 miles away from the Port of Oakland giving easy access to all terminals.
The Roselle facility is 30,000 square feet warehouse conveniently located near Garden State Parkway and NJ Turnpike. The facility is less than 7 miles from Port of Elizabeth.
Between these two locations we can competitively deliver your cargo out most of the US (excluding Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico) locations to our loading facilities. We selected Port of Oakland and Port of NJ/NJ because together these two ports handled 7.9 million containers in 2011 and offer competitive rates and fast service to most places in the world.
The diverse ethnic background and vast international experience of the management team at West Coast Shipping gives us a competitive edge. We have excellent relations with most ocean carriers. We have developed extensive contacts with overseas agents who help our customers in delivering their cargo at destination as well as with import documentation.
We at West Coast Shipping are interested in building long lasting mutually beneficial business relationships while helping increase our customers’ profitability. Give us a try to see how we can help you become more successful in international trade.
